The non-profit Future Foundation
Object of the foundation
The “Zukunftsstiftung der Liechtensteinischen Landesbank AG” (the Future Foundation of Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG), which was founded in 2011 as part of our 150th anniversary celebrations, supports commitment to ecological sustainability in everyday life. Besides environmental projects, we also back non-profit projects that improve living and working conditions and promote self-responsibility. We focus on innovations in the areas of knowledge transfer as well as the integration and implementation of social entrepreneurship.
Trust, responsibility and reliability are important to the LLB Group. The company is closely connected with the people and the economy of Liechtenstein and the adjacent regions. In addition to project-specific investments, the Future Foundation contributed to society by donating a total of CHF 73’500 to social organizations in 2014.
Projects in 2014
In 2014, we supported 6 projects and 20 institutions. After its initial support, the Future Foundation continued to fund the “Freiwillige Soziale Jahr Liechtenstein” (voluntary year of community service) in 2014. This project offers young people the opportunity to complete a supervised and professionally organized voluntary social service year in a social institution. Five people were able to successfully complete the social year and, as a result, further develop their future perspectives.
At the Bank Linth head office in Uznach, the Future Foundation sponsors a donation point for “Tischlein deck dich”, an organization that provides food aid for people in need. The Future Foundation also offered start-up assistance for the innovative project “Co-Working Space Vaduz”. This endeavour allows for new forms of workspace culture by providing premises for creative collaboration. The goal is to create a permanent platform for interested people in the areas of social entrepreneurship and to generate sustainable development.
The Future Foundation also financially supported the Liechtenstein based International Commission for the Protection of the Alps (CIPRA) and its project “Ein grünes Band für das Alpenrheintal” (A green belt for the Alpine Rhine Valley) as well as the Verein Kinderoase association in Vaduz in creating an apprenticeship position in childcare. The Future Foundation also makes contributions to the “Stiftung Zukunft Liechtenstein” foundation, which promotes the sustainable social and economic development of Liechtenstein.
The Future Foundation is a member of the association of non-profit foundations in Liechtenstein (Vereinigung liechtensteinischer gemeinnütziger Stiftungen), which aims to promote the idea of entrepreneurial philanthropy.
